Kanye West Responds Criticism of ‘White Lives Matter’ T-Shirts, Calls ‘Black Lives Matter’ a Fraud

Kanye West has issued a response to the backlash surrounding his YZY SZN 9 collection featuring a controversial “White Lives Matter” T-shirt and has labeled “Black Lives Matter” as a deceitful movement.

Yesterday, Kanye West made a return to Paris to showcase his latest collection YZY SZN 9. The live-streamed show on YouTube began with Kanye West addressing the audience, declaring himself as Ye, the leader, and asserting that they are the new fashion authorities. Following Kanye’s address, the Donda Choir performed before the models presented the new collection.

After the show, instead of discussing the clothing and innovative 3D-printed boots, all the attention shifted to Kanye’s choice of attire featuring the “White Lives Matter” slogan, sparking a heated debate online.

Kanye West took to Instagram early in the morning to share his thoughts on the responses to YZY SZN 9, stating, “Everyone knows that Black Lives Matter was a scam. Now it’s over. You’re welcome.” He referred to the alleged misuse of funds by the organization to purchase real estate as the reason behind his allegations.

In a subsequent post, Kanye questioned why the focus was solely on his T-shirt rather than other aspects of the show, such as the delayed start or the actual garments showcased. He also reiterated a key point from his pre-show speech, stating that Bernard Arnault is his new rival akin to Drake, indicating a forthcoming confrontation with him.
